Hi, I’m Carlos! A coach, sports enthusiast, and the founder of

I fell in love with the game at a very young age like many of you. I’ve been following and playing soccer for many years.

Throughout my career, I always enjoyed helping soccer players chase their dreams, which is why I started this website. I wanted to reach a larger audience outside of my local area and was born.

This website is a platform I will be using to update club pages on any tryouts, stadiums, players, tech, and more from clubs around the world. I also create free recruitment profiles for players looking to have that extra competitive edge when reaching out to clubs.

That’s it. That’s my pitch for you to stick around (or browse the site as you please).

This is already too much text for a “see more” drop-down button thing. If you want to reach out to me, head on over to my contact page 🙂

Saint-Étienne History

Saint-Étienne have won a record 10 Ligue 1 titles, as well as six Coupe de France titles, a Coupe de la Ligue title and five Trophée des Champions. Additionally, Saint-Étienne has been crowned champion of Ligue 2 three times in its history.

The majority of the club’s successes and honors came during the decades of the 1960s and 1970s, when Jean Snella, Albert Batteux, and Robert Herbin served as the club’s managers.

Claude Puel was the most recent manager of the team, and Loc Perrin, who began his career with the club in 1996, served as captain throughout that time. Due to the color of its home jerseys, Saint-Étienne is often referred to as “the Greens,” or “Les Verts.” The club’s primary adversary is Olympique Lyonnais, which is located in the same general area as them and competes with them in the Derby Rhône-Alpes. 2009 saw the establishment of the club’s first female section.


The Stade Geoffroy-Guichard in Saint-Étienne, France is a stadium that may be used for a variety of events. The majority of its applications are for football competitions and matches, including the UEFA Euro in 1984 and 2016, the FIFA World Cup in 1998, and the FIFA Confederations Cup in 2003. Additionally, it was a location for the Rugby World Cup in 2007, and it is also used for rugby union.

It is known as “le Chaudron” (the Cauldron) or “l’enfer vert” (the Green Hell), both of which are references to the colors that the local football team, AS Saint-Étienne, wore during its glory. These nicknames were given during the team’s heyday because it drew especially huge audiences (the record being set in 1985, with more than 47,000 spectators). Recently, its current capacity was 35,616 before the ongoing renovations, which started in 2011 and have temporarily lowered this figure to 26,747. These improvements are expected to be completed in 2018. When the upgrades have been completed, there will be enough seating for 42,000 spectators within the stadium.
